She may have moved out of Beverly Hills for an acting career in London's West End, but Brenda Walsh is now lending her talent as a thespian to a new series of Education Connection commercials. Watch Brenda play a bussiness woman, a chef, a nurse, a crime scene investigator, and ...a flapper? Oh, Brenda — where did you go wrong? If the 90210 audience didn't hate you so much, we would have liked to see you back in Beverly Hills, with Dylan, for good.

The icing on the proverbial cake is that I first saw this ad during a 90210 marathon on Soap Net this weekend. Contrasting the old Brenda Walsh with present-day Shannen Doherty seemed almost cruel. How the mighty have fallen!
